I added several new plants to my perennial garden after digging up some I no longer wanted. It was one of those more infrequent times when I actually had open places for new plants rather than having to find room in my crowded garden.
Coincidentally and randomly enough, two of them have the word “sea” in the name – one is a sea lavender (just like the ones on the bay side of Cape Cod,) and one is a sea holly called Blue Glitter. While I have a few globe thistles that sport similarly colored flowers (purple-blue), the sea holly as a whole plant gradually “glows” with this beautiful color.
In the first photo, you can see the 2 stalks – one has started to change color, the other is, for the most part, a very pretty green.
In the last photo, you can see how even the stem becomes the purple/blue color as well if you look closely. When the whole plant changes over, it will be quite a statement!
